Here is a submission from Jessica Wong, one the participants of the competition. She says "Human right is like the man standing and looking into the lake so peacefully without restriction or curfew. Just like the scenery at Richmond Park it could happen in anywhere in the world."

Here is a submission from Suzanne Hafezi, who has submitted this picture to the competition. She says "I have this necklace which always reminds me of a quote by the Sufi poet, Rumi: "God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches you by means of opposites, so that you will have two wings to fly - not one". Surely that's what human rights should ensure?”
